The regional library welcomed two new staffers over the past couple of months. In early December, Mark Volland (pictured at right) joined as the new communications manager. He comes to SMRLA from Calvert County Government where he was the deputy director of communications and media relations. Mark has 25 years of experience in marketing and communications across various Southern Maryland organizations.
Richard Guinn joined the team in January as an information catalog librarian. In a library career spanning more than 20 years, Richard has been a librarian at the Texas Medical Center Library in Houston, head technical services librarian at University of Texas School of Public Health and, most recently, a cataloging and metadata librarian at the Texas Medical Center Library. He serves as the cataloging and processing team lead for SMRLA.
